We also own a 2 1/2 yr old Maytag range and our oven won't heat up. The bake element was cracked in two so my husband replaced it but the bake element still won't heat up. Don't know what part to buy now!
Oh no, your one of the unlucky ones.
Sounds like your oven control has been damaged too.
I would say 1 out of 20 of the maytag ovens I replace the bake element in also needs a new oven control.
The oven control is the part were you turn the oven on and set the temperature.
If you want to post your model number here I can look up the part for you or you can enter your model number in the upper right hand corner to search for it.
